SQUADRON, AUBRY INTRODUCE KALIEF'S LAW TO FIX “SPEEDY TRIAL” RULES IN NYS

Broken System Forces Defendants to Endure Significant Delays Before Trial

Electeds: The Experience of Kalief Browder Must Be A Call To Action

ALBANY — State Senator Daniel Squadron and Assemblymember Jeffrion Aubry announced legislation (S.5988) to fix New York State's "speedy trial" law following the recent death of Kalief Browder, who spent three years in pre-trial detention at Riker's Island. Kalief's Law closes a legal loophole that forces defendants to endure significant delays before trial, even while in jail, despite the time limits established by law. This change will limit delays by prosecutors and the court, so that defendants are afforded their constitutional right to a speedy trial.

(Albany, NY)-The New York State Senate has passed legislation, S1901 by Senator Bonacic, that would increase safety and security at alcohol and substance abuse treatment facilities that are utilized for judicial diversion programs.
